A new lodge in Sri Lanka will let you spend the night in a cocoon suite on the edge of a Sri Lankan national park. The Wild Coast Tented Lodge opened on 1 November on a beachfront along the edge of Yala National Park, the country’s most famous national park, home to wildlife like elephants, crocodiles and monkeys. The lodge is inspired by wilderness safari camps, but contains 28 luxury tented “cocoon suites”. The tents offer a hotel-like experience and jungle views through massive glass entrances.
Instagram is where more and more travellers are getting their travel inspiration, so if you’re wondering where to head this winter, start scrolling through those hashtags. Nearly 3.5 million people in the UK will head overseas over Christmas and the New Year, many in search of the joys of cold-weather destinations. To help figure out where to go, Focus Clinics has created a list of the most popular winter spots in the world, based on Instagram posts.
A New York sensation is heading to Disneyland, as the restaurant that launched the “crazyshake” milkshakes will open its first California location there. Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer announced its plans to open the new spot in winter 2018 at Downtown Disney District. While there’s no shortage of crazy food options at Disneyland, Black Tap is in a league of its own when it comes to elaborate concoctions.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
